I had another awesome opportunity to do a little traveling for a job shadow this week!
Thursday evening I hopped in the car heading for Lousiville, Kentucky! I made a quick stop in Bowling Green for the Corvette Museum, wow! Some really awesome cars, it’s a must if you are into that sort of thing.
I hit Louisville right at 5:30, but for some reason there was NO traffic and I was able to drive straight into my downtown hotel. Later I found out there was a time change and it was actually 6:30, which explains the lack of traffic. After checking in to my hotel I asked for a dinner recommendation and it was a good one. I walked a few blocks to BBC (Bluegrass Brewing Company). I ordered the bluegrass burger… I mean Kentucky IS the bluegrass state! It was fantastic. Grass fed beef with pimento cheese, friend green tomatoes, fried onions, and a big piece of ham. DELICIOUS! After dinner it was off to bed, I’m always shadowing those morning shows!
2AM alarm clock came just as early as it always does! I was off to the new station WLKY in Louisville, Kentucky. To make it even sweeter, today I job shadowed an OU alum, Matt Milosevich! We had a blast talking about OU and the TV biz. Learned a lot about making my ever so important resume tape!
After my 4-9am shift it was time to explore some more! I had brunch at Toast on Market… the BEST breakfast I have ever ate out.
So amazing. Then I went and walked by the Ohio River… and just to say I went, drove across the bridge to Indiana and drove around for a few minutes. Then it was getting time to head to Churchill Downs. The home of the Kentucky Derby. First I toured the museum to get the full background. Then it was time for the races to start. So much history and so many fun things to do. I can’t imagine how crazy that place is during the Derby! So glad I got a taste of what it’s like!
